The sixth edition of the Science Festival, from the 6th to the 8th of May, will be centered on the show “wave hunters”

This post is part of a series about quick questions and answers about the Virgo experiment and the science of gravitational waves. Do you have a quick question? Tell us and we will reply! What are the main sources of noise for Virgo? The noise has several origins and can generate spurious signals in the […]
They are many and span several engineering and cutting-edge technologies
The study of gravitational waves will be fundamental to understanding the nature of gravitation and open a new window on the Universe
Advanced Virgo is the major upgrade of the Virgo detector.
Yes, the nature of these two kinds of waves are completely different, even if the generation “mechanisms” are similar.
This optical configuration of Virgo is called a Michelson interferometer and allows the possibility to unveiling tiny spatial deformations,
Gravitational waves are ripples in spacetime that propagate throughout the Universe at the speed of light.
Have you ever imagined to dance around a black hole?
From the 24th to the 27th of September, a green colored laser has done a
round trip between the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière and the city
hall of Vaulx en Velin, 7 km away. Thanks to a simple rotating mirror,
it has been possible for people to measure the speed of light.
